    Just want to let you know you scored that because of traffic on I-95. I don't care who's dibsed that already, I'm asserting my authori-tay and claiming it.

    Or we could trade for my stainless version and I'll kick in cash. ;)

    Ah...no. You weren't even among the first five. I have dibs on that and friend Gav knows it.

    You may want to clear this with Lou first.
    I definitely like the stainless version more. Had to force myself not to pm Jeff/jwalter when he put up his for sale. But I just can't resist Martin's full package.

    Alpha, hear hear. I bought something I shouldn't have also, will post some pics when I receive it later this week. In the meantime, we can exchange stories on how the watch fall onto our laps (if you think that would work on the Mrs. you are welcome to use this one) All the subsequent posts (esp those waffles) are not helping with the wants! Not at all!!

    Anyhow, this is a recent purchase by the girlfriend, perhaps I can reason that the size of the clock equals to _____ watches?

    It occurs to me that there are a few novices here when it comes to getting a recent arrival past the inspector (aka: the wife). Let me give you a few advanced tips - no jokes this time. Or as MC Hammer said "Yo! Sound the bell, school's in sucka."

    1) Buy several of the same strap. Seriously! I have 3 Kelaran matt black gator with small scales, 2 Hadley-Roma brown gator with white stitching, multiple Hirsh lizard colors of the same style, etc. Think about it - how will your wife know the difference between two round 35-ish mm watches made of a similar color metal that have similar dials? To her, they'll look the same, just like you think about the 12 different pairs of black pumps in her closet.

    2) Buy and sell more, but make a bigger deal about outgoing watches than incoming ones. "Hey hon, I'm off to the Post Office to ship out a watch I just sold - need any stamps while I'm there? How about anything from the grocery store since it's around the corner?" Yep, you seem like you're offering to be the nice guy AND casually noting that you're getting rid of a watch.

    3) When you sell off 3 or 4 cheap watches to fund one expensive watch all she has to know is quantity out > quantity in.

    4) DO NOT LET HER KNOW WHAT YOUR PAYPAL ACCOUNT PASSWORD IS. Set up a separate one for watches / hobbies if necessary.

    Okay, class dismissed. Go forth and watchiply.

    After searching the farthest reaches of the Continuum, I've had a significant incoming due for 3 agonizing weeks now.... Today day should be the day

    Pictures when it happens. One word.

    Thanks for the tip. :thumbsup: I've just bought two watches a few days apart and I was really thinking about the inspector thing. Since I'm also doing some renovation work I'd definitely hear "you know this little new hobby of yours is getting really expensive and you've just spent half a dishwasher blablablablablabla". Just ordered the same Hardly-Roma I bought last week for a gold-capped Seamaster. :cool:

    This is the most evil thread ever. Its one thing posting a pic of a watch in wearing, but I know feel pressured to go buy a new watch daily. You've just moved beyond enablement into coercion....:)
